Bryan Batt (Mad MenJeffrey), Jay Armstrong Johnson (On the TownThe Phantom of the Opera), Carman Lacivita (Marvin's RoomCyrano de Bergerac), Noah J. Ricketts (FrozenBeautiful), and Britton Smith (Be More ChillShuffle Along) will star in To My Girls, set to begin its world-premiere production Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theater's Tony Kiser Theater March 15 ahead of an April 12 opening night.

Penned by playwright and screenwriter JC Lee (LuceHow to Get Away With Murder), the play centers on a friend group of gay men enjoying a post-pandemic vacation in sunny Palm Springs who, after the drinks start pouring, discover some hard truths about a changed world.

A Strange Loop and Be More Chill director Stephen Brackett will helm the production, leading a creative team that includes scenic designer Arnulfo Maldonado, costume designer Sarafina Bush, lighting designer Jen Schriever, and sound designer Sinan Zafar. Movement is by Patrick McCollum, and casting is by The Telsey Office.

To My Girls is a Donna and Ben M. Rosen commission, and the production is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Producing new American plays and supporting American playwrights is the foundation of Second Stage Theater, and commissions help support these artists as they create new works for the stage," says Second Stage President and Artistic Director Carole Rothman. "We’re very much looking forward to our audiences discovering this funny and timely new play."

Second Stage's 2021-2022 season kicked off last year with Rajiv Joseph's Letters of Suresh Off-Broadway and Lynn Nottage's Clyde's on Broadway. The company will next produce the first Broadway revival of Richard Greenberg's Take Me Out, beginning March 10 at the Hayes Theatre; and a Broadway transfer of Stephen Adly GuirgisBetween Riverside and Crazy, beginning at the Hayes in the fall.
